maiden voyage, went well but needs a bigger prop, hitting the rev limiter with a 11" dia. x 13" pitch

11" dia. x 14" pitch a bit better, but needs at least a 15" pitch to get the performance up

feels just right Nick, not sure if it's a bit stern heavy but as it's the only SR4 I've been on nothing to compare with, but still goes well with two on board and undersized prop, hopefully when right prop fitted it will go better again, more than happy so far, great fun

Stern heavy?

She looks well balanced because she is!

Looks great Chris... They are good fun aren't they?? ;-)

I was surprised how well mine handled the choppy stuff... We did a 53 mile trip in ours last month some of it less than favourable conditions and, apart from the wind blowing the bow spray back at us, the whole trip was done pretty comfortably. the little SR4 definately punches above its weight.

Out of curiosity, what prop are you currently running? I'll need to check but I think I've got a 12p fitted. it'd be interesting to see the difference in performance between our two sister ships!!

Are you saying it is balanced because Chris is large?

If so then this would explain why my Sr4 with a 50hp 2st with me and family in is rather tail heavy as I'm a light weight!

excellent fun Simon, even on a run from Caernarfon thru the Swellies to Puffin Island not a drop of spray, which included some enthusiastic driving

started off with a 11" dia. X 13" pitch which induced revving out at around 30mph, currently running a 11" dia. X 14" which is now giving around 35mph, but still hitting 6200rpm, hopefully got a 11" dia. X 15" pitch on the way to try next time, but maybe need to go even bigger, I'd like to get up to around 40mph but reduce the revs to around 5500 to 5750'ish, but it's all a guessing game!

it didn't seem to make much difference if I was on my own or when Jayne was on the back seat, there again Jayne is just a touch lighter than me, just
